for months now. we can expect mr. romney to hammer home the increase in the national debt and the stubbornly high jobless rate and to ascertificate mr. obama had the chance but failed to fix them. jenna? jenna: we'll watch for that tonight. wendell, thank you very much. we are your election headquarters and only place, only place you need to be for tonight's big debate. tune in at 8:55 eastern for complete coverage and analysis headed by our own bret baier and megyn kelly. wendell mentioned you need a computer ready. we have interactive coverage with harris fulg faulkner and rick folbaum. gregg: we goat it covered. as millions of voters make their presidential picks ahead of election day there is new concern about absentee ballots and the potential for voter fraud. jenna: what happens to all the ballots when they're early? where are they kept? eric shawn will join us for that. new information on a big story we brought you yesterday. those seats somehow coming loose on american airlines planes. why did it happen and who is to blame? rick folbaum has an update for us and the very latest on all
. >> it was determined by a toss of the coin that mr. romney would pose the first question to senator kennedy. >> my impression has been you have followed a campaign as soon as the primary was over of trying to divert the voter's attention from the issues at hand and instead making personal attacks on me as unfounded. they are characterized as untrue, unfair, and sleazy. 12 are women in my firm. you are wrong. he said we would give no benefits to americans. we have 40,000 employees in firms i am associated with to give health-care benefits appeared only part-time do not have health care benefits. that happens to be the same -- the same as your firm. a strike as you criticize me for. you know they were strikers of a company we were not investigated in -- invested in perry purveyed that -- you parade that are around as if it is my problem. i am a fan of the minimum wage. when will this end?

was where is the substance mr. romney? is that a good debate just throwing around a lot of comments. and i didn't think the spt taking credit for some of the things he's doing. and the second comment i is minority voters are scared of the i.d. i would like to see if you would comment on how you're polling and if you're involved with any of the hispanic leadership about making sure the vote gets out? >> i disagree with the first part. i thought it was a more subs stan tive debate i've seen in a while. and i was watching some of the meters and when romney was going through his five point plan, his numbers went straight up. i thought -- i don't think it was vague, i thought it was a lot of substance. >> it was the most substive debate i can remember in terms of plans in a long time. maybe the bar is set so low it's not hard to get over but i was kind of surprised. >> i guess what is substance these days, especially in the modern debate or communications? i guess my summation would be you had a very good sense of these two yes's philosophy and approach to government. and substance will save it
a third party. i voted the man not the party. when i look at what mr. romney is doing and mr. ryan is doing as opposed to what i already know about president obama, i am proud of him -- the things he is talking about as opposed to what they are talking about is about the rich getting richer as opposed to all of us being in this together. i do not have a problem paying more tax to help somebody out right now. i got where i was because of what people did prior to me. if a democrat or a republican needs a little help now, are we going to be americans and help each other out? are we going to play the race card in some situations, the money card the culture card? america is better than that. i want to see us take all of the good of everybody. host: thank you for the call. next is said joining us from georgia. the independent third party line. caller: i would like to make three or four quick points. as far as the a row corp. -- the irrelevancy of third parties, ralph nader was very relevant and florida. to the point about -- i am a libertarian. ross perot is the data kind of got me liste
in many areas as far as foreign affairs, which i don't know much about. but i think mr. romney has the ability to lead a company. when i was an heiress, there's the difference between a manager and a head nurse and a staff nurse. therefore, he has the ability to lead companies. but i think it takes a special person to lead the country. -- i was a nurse. host: we have a poll on our facebook page asking whether you plan to what the presidential debates tomorrow night. joe in atlanta, republican line. caller: how are you? yes, i am watching the debate. i want romney to ask a question of president obama about why mr. obama sent them to beat a black man in south st. louis in 2009 , a cancereth survivor. he was selling trinkets at the town hall meeting to pay his bills. you can find it on line, the beating of a black man at the st. louis town hall meeting. claire mccaskill tried to cover it up along with others and they got money from the unions if they would get a non-conviction for pulling him out of the line and calling him the n word and starting to be him up. that's a hate crime and

[applause] center brady, his running mate, in his failed bid to become lieutenant governor, released his tax returns. he did not pay any federal income tax for two years. what is it that mr. plummer has not paid? >> mr. palmer? >> i will answer the question. if you look and what is happening right now in the united states, if you look at what is happening, you have politicians of both polos -- part is not being honest with the voters. the bush tax cuts -- i will call of the obama tax cuts because they supported the extension. we have a tax code that is more than 72,000 pages, and grows every year. it does the group because it is getting better. it grows because connected individuals and businesses can figure out to create loopholes and deductions. the u.s. constitution is less than 10 pages, th
aggressive, and he succeeded in helping redefine the republican primary. here's a sample of romney at what many thereafter said was his best performance. >> mr. speaker, i'm not anti-immigrant. my father was born in mexico. my wife's father was born in wales. they came to this country. the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. don't use a term like that. megyn: is that the guy we're likely to see show up this week? because that, of course, was with the great debate coach who then got let go by the romney camp. >> we'll see. i still think you don't want to be responding, you want to be laying out your views, and you want to be prosecuting the president. he needs to go in there with the mind of a tough-minded district attorney who's trying to prosecute the guy who he wants to be on trial, not defending himself. megyn: the two harvard law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable.
